About Pemf

What matters the most intensity, frequency or waveform?

The short answer is intensity (measured in Gauss), when researching PEMF it's easy to get caught up in frequencies and waveforms but most devices available have a similar range of frequencies and waveforms, the way the devices differ the most is the intensity (Gauss).

There is a noticeable difference between the effects of using low or high intensity, both are effective however higher intensity therapy (50 Gauss+) is much stronger and will generally yield faster results.

How often would I need use the therapy?

For the most benefits we recommend a daily therapy of at least 30 minutes per day.

The great thing about PEMF therapy is that you can use your localised device or full body mat when watching TV, reading or relaxing so it is easy to fit it into your lifestyle.

How can I maximise the benefits of PEMF therapy?

A diet rich in magnesium and staying hydrated are some of the best ways to ensure you get the best out of PEMF therapy.

Is it dangerous to use the therapy too much?

It is not possible to overdose on PEMF therapy and there are no known negative effects from using it too much.

We do recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions provided with the device and we are happy to answer any additional queries for you if you contact us.

Is PEMF safe for everybody?

PEMFs are regarded as safe. The one absolute exclusion to this is for people who have pace makers or other implanted electronic devices as there is the potential that the PEMF device could interfere with it.

Caution is also advised during pregnancy. Whilst there is no evidence of harm caused by using PEMFs during pregnancy, their safety has not yet been established.

Will I feel anything during the therapy?

PEMF devices are pain free and you will not normally feel any sensation during the therapy. Many people experience a feeling of wellness and relaxation during the therapy.

Many PEMF devices are supplied with small magnets or other magnetic field detectors so you can be sure the device is working.

Are EMFs and PEMFs the same?

It is unproven that EMFs (such as from wireless devices) have a negative effect on your health but they are also different from PEMFs.

A big difference between PEMFs and EMFs is that PEMF therapy uses frequencies and magnetic fields at therapeutic levels. PEMF devices are considered healing because they replicate the natural magnetic field and low frequencies of the earth and never reach the high frequencies or heating effects of EMFs.

Is PEMF therapy FDA approved?

PEMF therapy is FDA approved for certain conditions (not all are listed below) and a short timeline of FDA approval is as follows:

1998 - FDA approved PEMF Therapy for urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation.

2004 - FDA approved PEMF Therapy for cervical fusion patients at high-risk of non-fusion.

2006 - FDA approved PEMF Therapy for treatment of depression and anxiety.

2015 - FDA reclassified PEMF devices from their existing Class 3 category to a Class 2 status, and most PEMF devices that are sold today in the United States are FDA registered as wellness devices.

Is PEMF therapy called anything else?

You may have heard about PEMF therapy under another name.

Common examples are Electromagnetism, ElectroMagnetic Pads, Electromagnetic therapy and Pulse Electro Magnetic Field therapy.
